Dividends4Life: Current Posting Schedule

Current Posting Schedule

Posted by D4L | Thursday, January 03, 2008 | | 2 comments »

Over the last couple of months I seem to have developed a rhythm in my postings. This de facto schedule appears to be working well. It is, as described below:

Early Morning Posting - I am a morning person and usually wake up on my own between 4am-5am. Since I am the only morning person in my household, I use this for my blogging time (though I need to resume my exercise program, which previously occurred during this time slot, but that's another post:).

Mondays: Stock Analysis - The stock analysis originally started out on Wednesdays, when I was posting my main article of the week on Mondays. I like preparing the stock analysis on the weekend since it takes more time than I have to devote to it before or after work. By posting it early morning on Mondays using Friday's closing information, the data is relatively fresh.

Wednesdays: Main Post of the Week - Given my work schedule, I can only muster one "main" article per week. I work horrendous hours. My "normal" work day is between 10 and 12 hours. Part of it is self-induced; I am a type-A, highly driven and self-motivated person that sets high standards for myself and my department. In November 2007, we closed a large acquisition (multi-$billion) and I am responsible for financially integrating it. On average, this added an additional 3 hours per day.

Fridays: Carnival and Article Review - In this post I highlight the carnivals that I participated in during the previous week and interesting articles that I read during the week. Since many of the carnivals come out on Mondays, a Friday post date gives me several days to read as many articles as possible.

Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays: Minor Posts - These days may or may not have posts. When they do they are of the type not requiring significant research (i.e. I can just sit at the keyboard and bang them out).

First Saturday or Sunday of the Month: Progress Report - I will provide a progress report toward my stated Investing Goals during the first weekend of the month.

I am sure that I will continue to tweak this as I go along, but for now this seems to be working well.
